This is a big decision. We’ve got your back

You’re figuring out what age division you need to play in. You’ve identified up a few clubs in your area. Now for the hard part: picking just ONE club to play for during the upcoming season.

This is a big decision. Club volleyball requires an investment of both time and money. It is a good idea to find out as much as you can about your different options before making any decisions.

Remember to avoid assumptions as you start this process. Don’t assume a big club is better than a small club. Don’t assume a volunteer coach is better than a paid coach. Don’t assume the right fit for your friend is the right fit for you. Talk to several different clubs as you start to gather information.

Sit down as a family and figure out which clubs match your player’s goals, commitment level, financial situation, etc. Once you have picked several top choices, register with Badger Region/USAV and select the tryout membership option. This enables you to participate in region programming (such as tryouts). Please note you will ALSO need to register for the tryout through each individual club as they are a separate organization.

Attend tryouts for several of your top choices if possible. One club may decide to offer you a roster spot while a different club may not. Trying out for several clubs gives you options and a “safety net” in case your top club does not offer you a spot.

Continuing policies


Badger Region clubs can offer “early” tryouts for out-of-state players. Because of conflicting tryout policies and dates among bordering Regions, effective immediately, clubs will now have the option of holding a tryout and making an offer for athletes living outside of Wisconsin based on the tryout policy of the athlete’s home region. Athlete commitment dates (see below) will remain consistent with Badger Region rules. At this time, nothing changes for athletes living in Wisconsin. This is an optional waiver for those clubs who have or wish to have male or female athletes from a neighboring state tryout for their club, and the club is responsible for confirming an athlete’s address, knowing and abiding by alternate regional tryout policies as well as any unforeseen circumstances related to choosing this option. The Region will authorize only one tryout session for out-of-state athletes per age/gender tryout wave. That means a club can host an out-of-state tryout for girls 14-and-under, one tryout for out-of-state girls 15-and-older and one tryout for out-of-state boys.

QUESTIONS TO ASK THE CLUB

– What is the club philosophy? To win? To improve? To have fun?
– How do you select your players?
– What age groups do you offer?
– How many teams do you have at each age level?
– Do you follow Badger Region Best Practices for tryouts?
– Who are the coaches at my age level?
– What is their background in coaching?
– How is playing time allocated?
– What are your club dues? Is there a payment schedule?
– What is covered/not covered in that fee?
– Are there any other financial obligations? Travel? Fund raising? Uniforms?
– Where, when and how often do you practice?
– Are practices mandatory? What if my child misses a practice? Misses a tournament?
– Are players allowed to play other sports during the club volleyball season?
– How long is your season?
– How far will the team be traveling?

Once you have gathered this information for several clubs, take a minute to think about what you hope to get out of the experience.

QUESTIONS TO ASK YOURSELF/YOUR CHILD

– What does my child want to get out of the club experience?
– Does my child want to play in high school? At what level in college?
– Does my child just want to enjoy the game and play with friends?
– What is my child’s priority for allocating free time: job, activities with friends, other club sports, etc.?
– Can my child keep up with school work?
– Can we afford the program we choose?
– How important is it that we, as parents, travel with our child? Can we save money if our child travels with the team?
